Make Up For Ever Smoky Stretch Mascara Review

Hello long lashes! I recently tried the new Make Up For Ever Smoky Stretch Mascara and it really delivers on the stretch factor. My lashes are long, dark, and totally defined. I love how this mascara goes on smoothly and the formula is amazing!

The brush is so tiny and the bristles catch every singe lash so you get a great coat of coverage in one layer. I loved this mascara from the second I saw the brush, and it really gave me gorgeous lashes.

I featured a full before and after look at my lashes over on Pretty Chatty, so check out the post here to see what this mascara can do to my limp lashes.

So far every single Make Up For Ever product that I have tried has been amazing. From the awesome eye shadows I wrote about here, to the Ink Liner I wrote about here, everything I have tried has really impressed me. The Make Up For Ever Redefining Red Best Selling Red Lip Duo is no different.

This duo of a lip liner and lipstick is super cute and high quality. This mini pack comes with a travel size Lip Line Perfector, which is a clear lip liner to seal in your lipstick and prevent feathering. It also has a travel size Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in shade 43, which is meant to compliment every skin tone. This lipstick is creamy and smooth, and has an extremely pigmented bold red hue. It glides on like a dream and looks like the perfect Hollywood bombshell classic red lipstick.

With an incredible formula and fabulous colour, this lipstick is reason alone to buy the duo. The lip liner adds a perfect finishing touch and ensures that the pretty red lipstick will stay in place. I can see this lipstick becoming a staple in my makeup kit for sure. It’s no wonder this is called the Best Selling Red Lip Duo!

Quick Pick: Make Up For Ever Ink Liner

The new Make Up For Ever Ink Liner is the perfect skinny liquid liner with a great matte formula. For  precise lines, quick drying liner, and long-wearing look, this Ink Liner is a must-have product.

The triangular tube is great for holding the applicator tightly, and it gives strong control of the liner. With a calligraphy pen tip this works with the lightest touch. Once the liner is on it dries into a chic matte formula that lasts for hours with no smudging.

If you’re looking for a skinny line, super smooth application, and an amazing formula then look no further. The new Make Up For Ever Ink Liner will be available in January 2015 and is a must-have liner for the new year!

Sephora Wishlist: Fall 2014

Another season has come along and I have been switching up my outfits to go with the cool weather, but my beauty routine is still leaning towards summer. I have started wearing a few seasonal lipstick shades, such as these beautiful berry picks and these classic nude lipsticks, but that isn’t enough.  I’m ready for some Fall looks and new products to try, so naturally I’ve been browsing Sephora online in my spare time.

I have been eyeing so many pretty products lately and I just don’t know which ones to splurge on. My bank account says none but that probably won’t happen, so I want your help. Here are a few of the beauty products I have been daydreaming about, so if any of you have these items (or other suggestions) please share your thoughts in the comments. I need a full team of beauties to help me pick my next purchase!

Sephora Wishlist for Fall 2014

Sephora Wishlist for Fall 2014

1. Marc Jacobs Beauty Kiss Pop Color Stick, $35. First of all the packaging of this is beyond adorable! I can’t get over how cute and chic this looks. I love the little coloured tip to show the shade, and the silver tube is so stylish. I would love to walk around with one of the babies in my purse, but there are nine pretty shades and I can’t decide one which one I want. If you’ve tried one of these which shade do you like best?

2. Make Up For Ever Artist Palette, $48. I recently tried my first Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows and I fell in love, so now I want to try more shades. This palette has some great Fall colours that I could use for day and night looks.

3. Prada Candy Florale, $85. I love the original Prada Candy fragrance and I like florals, so this seems like a combination i would definitely enjoy. Plus I’m ready to switch up my Fall scent for something a little bolder.

4. Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, $26. Chapped lips aren’t cute so a lip polish would be great to gently exfoliate and keep my pucker smooth and soft. This sugar scrub has real brown sugar crystals and shea butter, so it helps nourish dry lips and refresh them.

5. Clinique Cheek Pop, $24. These blushes look so bold and bright, and the floral pattern is so cute. I have heard great things about these so I am definitely interested in trying one out.

There you have it, my wishlist for Fall. You can find all these products to browse at or buy for yourself at sephora.ca so check them out and tell me what you think! Have you tried any of these beauty products? I really want to hear your thoughts, or suggestions for other products, to switch up my Fall look. Leave a comment and let me know what you think of my picks!

Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow

These are by far the best eye shadows I have ever tried in my entire life. I cannot rave enough about how phenomenal they feel and how well they apply. The Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows are like none that I have ever had before, and I cannot believe what I was missing all this time.

These shadows are made with gel-powder formula which offers intense colour payoff and some serious pigment. They come in a variety of finishes, including matte, metallic, satin, and iridescent. They glide on so smoothly and are able to be blended, layered, and so much more.

In honour of Make Up For Ever’s 30th Anniversary the brand has released a new “Artist Shadow” Eye Shadow Collection, which has 210 new shadows in 5 different finishes. With the amount of colour options here there is no way you won’t find one (or ten) that catch your eye!

The two shadows I have to show you today are I-212 Periwinkle, an iridescent light blue that is super bold and beautiful, and ME-224 Navy Blue, a metallic dark blue with a subtle shimmer. Both of these blue shadows are seriously stunning, and although the colours are gorgeous it’s the formula that has me head over heels. The feel of these shadows is so lightweight and soft, and the way they glide right onto my skin in amazing. You can tell that these shadows are extremely high quality, and at $24 each it’s no wonder why.

Check out the rest of the shadows over at sephora.ca and excuse me while I go daydream about which ones I will be buying. The Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows are by far the best eye shadows I have ever used and I highly recommend everyone splurging on at least one of these incredible shadows.

Two New Liners To Love: Make Up For Ever Artist Liner and Rimmel London Exaggerate Eye Definer

This Fall you can get a glamorous smoky eye or a simple swipe of liner with these two new liners you’re sure to love. The new Make Up For Ever Artist Liner comes in 15 pigmented shades that deliver smooth and swift lines.

I tried out shade M10, a classic creamy black, and it glides on like a dream. It was great to get precise lines but it also was smooth enough to blend for a more dramatic look too. Let out your inner artist with these super opaque twist-up pencils!
 
For a little hint of glimmer try the Rimmel London Exaggerate Eye Definer, in shade 263 Starlit Black. This glittery liner is smooth and sparkly – perfect for a holiday party or special night out. It comes with a sponge at the end to help smudge, and has a built in sharpener. This liner is great for a quick way to spice up your usual black eyeliner look.

Both of these are great liners that have many uses. Try them for an everyday look or save them for a special occasion. I know I will be reaching for both very frequently this Fall! 

 

Melt-Proof Eyeliner For Fun in the Sun

For a long day in the summer heat you need makeup that is melt-proof and long-lasting. Whether it’s an all day music festival or just an afternoon at the beach, a bold eyeliner is the perfect touch of casual colour.
